Hi Jochen,

Thanks for the quick update on the bug report.

I can't see "mib-snmp-downloader" on the ftp archive.

Do you have a proposed data for when that package will become available?
Or, is there an unofficial version of that package i can use to get the MIB's?

The package i gave, as an exmaple, that's broken due to the snmpd issue, is not in the debian repos.
I'm assuming, all your packages are already confirming with this new approach.
